With the data published by the firm Mercury Research, AMD can reaffirm that it is on the right track with its Zen architecture in the field of the x86 family, which currently controls 13.3% of the quota Market:
AMD has risen one point with respect to the previous quarter, and 4.7 with respect to last year. Although Intel remains ahead, it is a clear advance to take account that, incidentally, comes from the segments of desktops and laptops. In general, your desktop quota is greater than that of laptops. In addition, it is curious to see how the company has also increased its share in the server market, although it has just lost a few points compared to last quarter. It is possible that this is partly due to the market waiting for the arrival of the 7 nm EPYC.
The key to these figures is that with Zen the company you’ve found its own rhythm. It is clear that AMD has benefited from Intel’s problems to realize the 10 nm. For its part, the blue should complete its plans with this manufacturing node next month with Ice Lake, but for now AMD should announce its 7 nm in Computex along with other product lines.
